    This week I lost a horse and euthanized my elderly border collie. :(

    The horse colicked one morning. Vet came out, tubed, hydrated and sedated. Horse was 27 so not a candidate for surgery. When...

    Leave your head in position, chin up, facing forward, and just glance down with your eyes. :) Your head weighs a lot (all those brains, right? :yes:) so if you let your head tip forward you...

    For the past year, I've had a border collie who can't get up on her own. Once I help her up, she gets around fine - until she falls. :( One vet says hip dysplasia. Another vet says spinal stenosis...

    I started with a dozen chicks and now, nearly a year later, still have eight hens. They free-range during the day and are locked up in the chicken house at night.

    They have helped tremendously...

    Hand-Crafted Jewels.

    Very good quality, acres of choices, fast service, and you cannot beat the prices. :)

    Beware! I hung myself by my belt from my saddle horn recently. Right after I'd handed someone my knife and ridden away. :uhoh:

    I posted a thread here asking for advice, and found my best method...

    No. :lol: My trainer had me try it on Conjure when he had a case of the spooks after moving to the new barn. I'm told it's supposed to remind them of the bond they felt with their dams.

    If so,...

    :lol: My thought exactly when I heard this on the morning news. He forgot the last two S's.

    If somebody tells me they're thinking about doing something, I believe them and respond accordingly.

    Do some horses - especially grumpy schoolies - pull faces and never escalate? Sure. I used to...

    Heck yes I correct it! When I'm riding him, his attention better be on me, not on evil plans of world domination or whatever.:lol:

    I might offer him a good deal first - a twitch of the rein to...

    I don't know about peafowl, but I have lots of wild turkeys and free range domestic chickens. I wondered if the wild turkeys would get after my chickens but the two species seem oblivious of each...

    My neighbor insists people remove their shoes at her door. In her case, it's because she's tight as a tick with money and thinks it saves wear on her carpet - if you go in the side door onto the...

    They're called Livestock Guardian Dogs for a reason. How do you know the dog didn't attack whatever injured the llama? And, uh, why are you getting so hyper about this? Just curious. Second post...

    I hadn't thought about Prince Tom in years. :) My first purebred dog was a cocker spaniel because of that book.

    Sadly, I didn't know about puppy mills back then and that's where we got ours. ...

    I'd look for a corgi forum. Breed-specific usually gets the more knowledgeable posters.

    I'm very sorry about the loss of your llama. But please consider contacting a pyr rescue for the dog. I'm sure I've read on Big Fluffy Dogs that they've taken in chicken-killing LGDs. They might...

    Diamond wool makes one like that - contour with leather down the spine. I have it and one horse loves it. He's older with a dropped back and I get nice even sweat marks using it with my flex-tree...

    My cats and my chickens were born on the same day - May 1 - so they've kind of grown up together. Of course, they didn't meet each other until they were both a couple of months old. But they get...

    South Carolina. Mine never wear their halters at home in turnout. I've boarded at three barns over the years, and of those, two had a rule against halters in stalls or in turnout. One required...

    All my breeds - Rhode Island Reds, Black Sex-Links, and Barred Rocks - are prolific layers and good foragers. They lay brown eggs. Double-yolks not uncommon. As said above, I get about an...

    Since I don't compete, going very well under saddle means safe and willing. For that I'll put up with lots of other stuff. :)

    Currently, I'm getting a fills-in-for-me confidence-giver in trade...

    I'm going to give your trainer the benefit of the doubt.:) I can understand why she'd be concerned about you riding in the ring with other riders after your incident. A loose horse having a hissy...

    I'm surprised I wasn't more upset over losing four of my hens, since I'm awful about getting attached.

    I think it helps to get breeds that all look alike so you can't tell them apart. :) My BSLs...
